Gen 3.15 +

Gen 3.15

“…I will put enmity between thee & the woman & between thy seed & her seed;

it shall bruise thy head & thou shalt bruise his heel.”

“Testify, testify, testify – clearly, definitely, constantly, courageously, humbly – if you would keep the blessing…Testify to the Lord, tell Him you have the blessing & thank Him for it.”

– Samuel L Brengle

Oh for a return to GOD being *The* attraction at church. Oh, that He be the First reason we want to go. Excuse me (if you have to) but I don’t need colored lights on the sides, front, anywhere in the sanctuary to make it “more attractive.” May we (yes, you, yes, me) hunger to feel that sweet, gentle Presence tugging at our hearts. May we be very sensitive to His Spirit moving in our midst. We do NOT need attention getting banners, lights that move or other visional gimmicks. We need God. – 2/6/21 

“More than all else the Lord wants these wrestling, pleading, men…

there are but few who bear the burden of the world upon their souls day & night.”

– Samuel L Brengle

Will God allow you to “wake up” in your Heavenly Home, explore its spaciousness, then eventually wander “out doors” (whatever that may mean in heaven, I don’t pretend to know) to see the lay of the land,  & who your eternal “neighbors” may be? Or will God allow you to enter heaven, walk up a wonderfully winding trail, top a knoll, spy your Heavenly Home on the next hill & allow you to enjoy a majestic “approach”? He knows your right “intro” to heaven. O, God, Help Us Make It. – 2/9/21


Often the sinner’s best is in the past.

(Sinning “fun” doesn’t long last.)

Sin has a song that makes you cry.

The saint’s best is yet to be,

In Heaven, beyond death’s cold sea.

Rejoicing comes AFTER we die.

The devil wants you to worry. Why would you worry? If you are minding Jesus 100% He will take care of you 100%. His Father (also yours if you’re current with Him) runs the world. satan doesn’t. He’s a pretender. satan wants you to think he’s in charge. No. God has him on a chain – he can go only so far. Worry not about the devil & his cohorts. Stay true to Jesus. TODAY. – 2/9/21

Luk 23.43

“…Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee,

To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.”

“The genuine work of love

is always a hidden work.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer

Like to be with God?  Like to talk to Him? Good. He, the Almighty Maker of Heaven & earth, has arranged that we, mere mortals, may come (unworthy as we are) into His presence. He has made provision that we can talk to/with Him, now, while still in the flesh. Praise His Name. And, better yet, Much MUCH Better, He’s made provision that you (& I) may be with Him ETERNALLY!  – 2/10/21

“…‘The last days’ began with Christ’s first advent

& will end with His second advent.”

– F F Bruce
